FORT MYERS, Fla. - We are just a couple weeks away from one of the biggest literary events of the year in our area: The Southwest Florida Reading Festival.  It features dozens of nationally recognized authors to the shores of the Caloosahatchee in Fort Myers.  WINK News has been a part of this event from the beginning.  
     LuAnn McLane, one of the featured authors, and Margie Byers, the coordinator for the Southwest Florida Reading Festival, joined us in the studio this morning to fill us in about this year's event.
